There are new developments in the reconstruction project of Cinderella’s Castle and the surrounding moat.
In early March, the moat around Cinderella’s Castle was fully drained and cleaned in preparation for the renovation. The goal is to widen the pathway behind the castle, between Liberty Square and Fantasyland. The pathway before was prone to heavy traffic with very little wiggle room. Once the pathway reopens, guest flow to and from the castle should be much easier. As of now, the path will remain closed as the project moves along.
As we have just learned, there has been another closure in the area. Sleepy Hollow Refreshments, located in Liberty Square, has closed it’s outdoor seating area in the midst of the construction. This quick service dining spot is famous for their delicious waffle sandwiches and other fun snacks. While still open during the walkway renovation, guests of the Magic Kingdom might have difficulty finding a spot to sit and enjoy their snacks. At the moment, we do not know when the outdoor seating will reopen for guests.
This is one of many updates happening around the Walt Disney World Resort. The TRON coaster is still in development before it’s 2021 debut at the Magic Kingdom. The entrance of Epcot is going through renovation of their monolith removal. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests are awaiting the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
